Regular exercise is an important part of losing weight. It helps to control your weight by using excess calories that otherwise would be stored as fat as well as boosting your metabolism and lowering insulin levels. Physical activity also helps prevent many diseases and improve overall health.
Balancing the number of calories you expend through exercise and physical activity with the calories you eat will help you achieve your desired weight. The key to successful weight loss and improved overall health is making physical activity a part of your daily routine.
Research consistently shows that regular exercise, combined with healthy eating, is the most efficient and healthful way to control your weight.
